2. Ricardo Miranda Zuniga, FF Alumn, at Real Art Ways, Hartford, CT, July 20-Sept 23

A new video, "El Rito Apasionado" will be shown as part of 50,000 Beds an exhibition organized by Chris Doyle with the Aldrich Museum, ArtSpace and Real Art Ways. 50,000 Beds will feature videos commissioned from 45 artists entirely shot in Connecticut hotel rooms. The exhibition opens this weekend, details at: http://www.50000beds.net/ In "El Rito Apasionado" three Guevarrian Neo-Marxist Latino Terror Revolutionaries gather in a hotel room in Connecticut seeking to help establish a balance toward justice for the crimes committed by the government and military of the United States of America toward small and poor nation states, other cultures and peoples, the environment and the earth in general. "El Rito Apasionado" has been inspired by the rhetoric and tactics revolving around immigration used by Southern conservative officials to capitalize upon Homeland Security and the national fear mechanism to recieve funding toward militarizing the border. The claim that impoverished undocumented immigrants represent a terrorist threat is insincere and opportunist.

50,000 Beds:
A Project by Chris Doyle at Artspace,
Real Art Ways, and The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum
July 20 to September 23, 2007
Who's Sleeping Where?

Artspace (New Haven), Real Art Ways (Hartford), and The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum (Ridgefield) have joined forces for their first-ever collaboration spanning all three institutions this summer.

Artspace (New Haven), Real Art Ways (Hartford), and The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum (Ridgefield) have joined forces for their first-ever collaboration spanning all three institutions this summer.

50,000 Beds presents new video works by a diverse group of forty-five artists--each piece based on a room in a different hotel, motel, or inn across Connecticut. The exhibition focuses on the hotel room as a site filled with narrative potential and the content reflects a diverse range of artistic responses and themes.

Artspace opens Friday, July 20, from 6 to 8 pm (on view through September 15). Artists include: David Borawski, Nayda Collazo-Llorens, Moyra Davey and Jason Simon, Melissa Dubbin and Aaron S. Davidson, Melissa Friedling, Gene Gort, Nina Katchadourian, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, Adam Niklewicz, John Pilson, Gil Scullion, Grzegorz Surman, Eve Sussman, Chris Wilcha, and Amy Yoes.

Real Art Ways opens on Saturday, July 21, from 6 to 9 pm (on view through September 23). Artists include: Tyler Coburn, Liz Cohen, Jorge Colombo, Neil Goldberg, Aaron Katz, Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry, Megan Michalak and Sarah Sharp, Jeffrey Miller, Ricardo Miranda Zuniga, Shannon Plumb, J. Morgan Puett, John Sanchez, Erika Van Natta, Anne Weber, and Pawel Wojtasik and Terry Berkowitz.

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum opens on Sunday, July 22, from 3 to 5 pm (on view through September 3) with a 2pm panel discussion featuring Chris Doyle in conversation with participating artists Chris Wilcha, Marina Zurkow, and the team of Megan Michalak and Sarah Sharp. Artists include: Karina Aguilera-Skvirsky, Amy Barrett, Brent Green, Jacqueline Goss and Andrew Gori, David Ellis, Braden King, Oliver Herring, Simon Lee and Jim White, Josh Marston, Paul McGuirk, Laurel Nakadate, Tim Rutili, Dread Scott, Judi Werthein, and Marina Zurkow.

In order to fully appreciate the project and see all forty-five videos, viewers will be encouraged to visit each venue during the summer; visitors who experience the entire exhibition will receive a free catalogue!

Doyle has allowed the participating artists to drive the content of the exhibition. He comments on the challenge of mounting a single exhibition across three venues, "50,000 Beds is a collective experiment; and like any experiment, the results are unpredictable. The challenge of building a single show for three distinct sites lies in combining pieces that play off each other within each venue, as well as having the three parts work together. Several themes emerged from the commissioned work, and those themes weave in and out of all three locations."

50,000 Beds was realized with the support of the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism, the National Endowment for the Arts, the LEF Foundation, and the Furthermore program of the J.M. Kaplan Fund. Artspace and Real Art Ways receive general exhibition support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. 50,000 Beds has also been made possible by the generous donation of building materials by Ridgefield Supply Company and rooms by the participating hotels, motels, and inns across Connecticut. WFUV--90.7FM and wfuv.org - Public Radio from Fordham University--is the official media sponsor of the exhibition receptions.

4. Meg Duguid, FF Member, in Central Park, NY, July 20-22

Split, Splat, Splot
New work by Meg Duguid and Catie Olson
with guest appearances by Jeff DeSalvo, and Jon Marco

Central Park
July 20-22, 2007
12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. daily, with a grand finale on Sunday July 22 at 7:00 p.m.

Split, Splat, Splot is a series of synchronized pieing events taking place throughout Central Park. During the three day span, Duguid and Olson have synchronized their watches and will be performing nine classic pieing actions in various park locations directly on the hours of 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. daily, culminating with a grand two-woman synchronized pie routine on Sunday July 22 at 7 p.m. (see schedule and map on the following pages for a further description).

In advance of these events, Duguid and Olson set up a public learning pie lab, called I can toss. Can you smash? What a splat! A Pie Research Project, to determine which pies they will be performing which actions with.

I can toss. Can you smash? What a splat! A Pie Research Project was a public learning lab where Duguid and Olson tested pieing in April. By setting up a systematic pie experiment, they discovered what pies are best for which situations and how the structure of pie and the movements of the pie-er and pie-ee create meaning.

Although the cream pie seems to be the favorite of pieing moments, was it the most effective comedy instrument? Or is it the best for black and white film where pieing had its media heyday? To satisfy these questions, Duguid and Olson created a list of pie actions and another list of pie types and performed each action with each pie type to fulfill this quest.

After an extreme evening of scientifically lobbing a total of sixty pies at each other, Duguid an Olson came to a number of conclusions, including that cream pie is does not hold up as well as a double-crusted pie in a long-range throwing situation—and that sometimes the sponginess of meringue is funnier than the splatyness of cream.

Come join Duguid and Olson with guest appearances by Jeff DeSalvo, and Jon Marco in Central Park when these results will be put to the test.

Meg Duguid is a smiler, a laugher, and a joker. Utilizing the structures of comedy she explores the role humor plays in culture. Meg received her MFA from Bard College in 2005 and her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1999. She has exhibited and performed at the Chicago Cultural Center, the DUMBO arts festival, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, Flux Factory in Queens, and 667 Shotwell in San Francisco.

Catie Olson inevitably incorporates humor into her work. She captures the humor bent ideas with still and motion film. Catie received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2000 and a BS from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1995. Her work has been shown in various galleries and venues in Chicago including COMA and Heaven Gallery. Some of Catie's short films have also been on traveling road shows throughout the US.

Duguid and Olson have recently collaborated on an exhibition called Laugh Seriously at Butcher Shop Dogmatic Gallery in Chicago, a pie-racing performance called A Night at the Races: Racecar is racecar backwards, but piecar forwards is a challenge at The Green Lantern Gallery in Chicago, I can toss. Can you smash? What a splat! A Pie Research Project, at Fifty50 Gallery in Chicago, and are continuing their exploration of pies.

Synchronized Pieing--on the Hour
July 20-22, 2007, 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. daily

Each morning Duguid and Olson will be waking up with the roosters to synchronize their watches and bake that day’s pies. During the three-day span Duguid and Olson will be performing 9 classic pieing actions in various park locations directly on the hours of 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. daily. Every evening they will be found at Duguid’s local laundry mat cleaning their outfits from that day.

July 20, 2007
a. Sitting on pie will be performed with a Lemon Meringue pie: Olson will set a pie on bench to read the paper. Duguid not noticing the pie will sit directly on it.
Conservatory Water,12 p.m.

b. Running with pie will be enacted with a blueberry pie. Duguid will come at Olson with a running start and pie her at close range.
In front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2 p.m.

c. Duguid and Olson will hail a Carriage or Rickshaw on 60th St & 5th Ave. Sometime after they are picked up Olson will hit Duguid at arms length with a chocolate cream pie and perform a close-range pieing.
Taking off from 60th St & 5th Ave, 5 p.m.

July 21, 2007
d. Duguid holding a Banana Cream pie under Olson’s face as a sweet smelling temptation will push her face into the pie performing the famous face pushed into pie act.
In front of The Natural History Museum, 12 p.m.

e. Olson on the top of the bridge will enact a pie drop with a cherry pie on Duguid who is nonchalantly walking under the bridge.
Greywacke Arch, 2 p.m.

f. In an attempt to enact a close-range pieing on Olson, Duguid will accidentally pie a passerby with a pumpkin pie when Olson ducks. This is known as the duck close-up
Literary Walk, 5 p.m.

July 22, 2007
g. Olson will perform a close-range toss by tossing, overhand, a chocolate cream pie at Duguid.
Belvedere Castle, 12 p.m.

h. Duguid, using an apple pie will perform a long-range throw on Olson by pitching the pie at Olson from at least Eight feet away.
Great Lawn’s Baseball Fields, 2 p.m.

i. Olson, performing the duck and throw, will attempt to hit Duguid with a blueberry pie at close range but will accidentally hit a passerby at long-range when Duguid ducks.
Sheep Meadow, 5 p.m.

Synchronized Pieing--the Dance
Cedar Hill, July 22, 7 p.m.

For Duguid and Olson’s finale the have created a two-woman public slapstick dance piece based on the idea of synchronized swimming. This choreographed routine breaks down the motion of pieing into a poetic comedyesque dance. As they go between one pieing type to another, the layers of sugar will pile up on Duguid and Olson followed by the pair donning cleaning uniforms spilling buckets of water on the pie area and each other for cleaning.

6. Rev Billy, FF Alumn, at Highline Ballroom, NY, July 22 and 29, 2 pm

We Return From Iceland...where Alcoa dams the pristine rivers to make bombers and missiles. Reykjavik's big mall, "Kringlan" was exorcised during our visit, children, by earth-lovers from five continents. You can click here to see the action.

Now back in NYC, we return to the Highline Ballroom for our two final "Fabulous Worships," the 22nd and 29th, Sundays at 2 PM. Lunch, drinks and the First Amendment at every table. Go to http://Highlineballroom.com.

Isn't it time for a homegrown Free Speech Movement? Our leader in the battle with the monoculture and its enforcers would be those 44 beautiful words of the First Amendment. Yes, 9/11 happened, but what makes us safe is the strong city that we create when we're free in the streets -- to dance, shout, be sexy, parade, film, bicycle and yes, recite the First Amendment.

All together now, "NYPD shall make no law..."
